Mimi Becker of Nine Network's A Current Affair won the 2019 TV/Video Feature (Short Form) Quill for 'Teachers Under Attack'.
This story by Mimi Becker exposed a frightening situation facing too many teachers in Victoria: intimidation, violence and injuries at the hands of students, and institutional failures that exasperate their distress. Mimi's ability to get a number of teachers to talk on camera, when they worked for a government school, made their stories even more compelling.
